Embodied Carbon of Materials

Embodied Carbon of Materials

 There are two types of carbon emissions related to buildings, namely Operational Carbon (emissions related to operating the building in terms of electricity use, etc) and Embodied Carbon (emissions related to producing the materials that are used to build the building). 

This webinar is focusing on the latter: Embodied Carbon of Materials. Understanding how much embodied carbon is in the building’s materials is essential to create more sustainable buildings. The first presentation will outline the basics of embodied energy of materials and how do you address this in the design of a building. The second presentation will talk about low embodied energy materials, namely materials that are made from recycled materials. And lastly, a presentation on how to calculate the embodied energy of a building and what tools are available.
